Corporate History

Established as a corporate identity in 1978, Asiaciti Trust has its foundations in chartered accountancy practices which date back to 1886. The Group Managing Director and founder of Asiaciti Trust, Graeme W Briggs, was formerly the international tax partner of that practice. He acquired the international operations of that practice in 1975. Briggs and his family remain the principal shareholders of the Asiaciti Trust Group. Over recent years equity in the Group has been made available to other senior executives.

The precedent Asiaciti Trust entities commenced operations in 1971 (the New Hebrides) and in Hong Kong in 1974. Since then the Group has expanded steadily with offices in Singapore (1981), the Cook Islands (1986), Samoa (1988), New Zealand (1996), Nevis (2008), Panama and Dubai (2012) and most recently, London (2014).

With ownership wholly in the hands of management, Asiaciti Trust intends to continue to grow its business for the future benefit of its clients, staff and shareholders.
